Organizational Consultant & Coach

About Me

I rely on a results-based approach to leading projects, starting with the end results in mind and reverse engineering the project plan in order to ensure success. This approach, along with our emphasis on relationship-building, supports the effective planning and implementation of your project.

01. Equity

Via a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access (IDEA) lens, I create opportunities to increase shared understanding, comfort and trust to engage in these conversations, and ultimately, move the needle on IDEA with your group. 

02. Integrity

People trust us to adhere to our word.

03. Stewardship

I believe in being an effective steward of communities, culture, and our planet.

04. Client Value Creation & Social Value

What we do, we do well benifitting both you and the community. 

.05. Empathy

Meeting People Where They Are

06. Collaboration

“If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” ~African proverb.

About Me

About the Founder

"Given a hand. Giving a hand."

I am an immigrant and Indigenous person from El Salvador. When I was 9 years old, I moved to an impoverished community in rural California. My hardworking mother believed that my education was the key to a better life. I benefited from a multitude of supports throughout my educational journey, and my professional career has focused on creating pathways of opportunities for others in the community. 

As I work with you, I incorporate my bilingual, bicultural, and rural background to gain insights. Together, we explore practical and effective methods of communicating with a range of stakeholders, building relationships, and identifying opportunities for dynamic partnerships.
